Document Description
The proposed project would result in the development of a Dog Park within the existing footprint of Mooney Grove Park, in Visalia, California. The Project will consist of an area of l 70x 150 ft. The outer portion will consist of a newly constructed sidewalk, the inner portion will be enclosed and divided into 2-sections to separate large from small dogs. The enclosed area will house dog exercise and play equipment as well as seating areas for owners. Water and sewer lines will be developed to provide drinking water and drains for maintenance. Additionally, a new parking structure will be developed within the Mooney Grove Park for patrons who wish to specifically utilize the Dog Park. The Dog Park promotes outdoor recreational activity for the public and provides dog owners with the opportunity to unleash his or her dog within a confined area, eliminating the danger of the dog getting lose outside of the park; as such, the public will benefit as the dog park will provide a safe space for dogs to socialize, reducing anxiety toward new situations, and creating calmer dog-neighbor's. Additionally the dog park will reduce the number of off-leash dogs in other public spaces, making it easier for leash laws to be enforced elsewhere in the community. The development of a dog park encourages outdoor recreational activities for dog owners and their pets, specifically at Mooney Grove Park.
